Haibun: Flower Moon

For Martina

Walking through the glens and hills, we meet other walkers who love being here. The purity, the solitude, the wind moving through the pine. It’s as if their branches are opening wide to greet us with a warm welcome.

It is the day after the funeral of our much loved vet. The family asked anyone who wants to say goodbye to wear something blue.

We were very sad to learn one of our local vets has died in an accident while hiking in Glencoe, a place she dearly loved.

We thank her for her care and kindness and our thoughts are with her family, her friends and her colleagues at this difficult time.

Wishing you all a peaceful Thursday and may you all stay safe.

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
